The following is a recap of Saturday, June 23.
Saturday Plan: St. Petersburg, Dodgers vs. Devil Rays @ Tropicana Field
I always see commercials on TV for Sonic. It always looks delicious. I always wonder why they are on TV at home since we don’t have any Sonics. I’ve never actually even seen a Sonic. I mentioned this and there was one in Fort Myers so that was our plan for lunch. I ordered a Crispy Bacon Toaster Sandwich, Tots, and a Strawberry Smoothie. Everything was amazing. It makes no sense to me why there isn’t a Sonic across the street at home, and on every corner from here to Fort Myers, with Steak N Shakes in between. (more…)

The following is a recap of Friday, June 22.
For this trip the only plans were for the two baseball games. Both were at night so we just had to plan when to leave to get to our destinations. This meant that we would be getting back somewhat late. It also meant we had no early morning plans. Getting to sleep in is not something I get to do, ever. On weekends I ‘sleep in’. That means getting up two hours later than usual. So I get to sleep until 7:30am.
Friday Plan: Miami, Twins vs. Marlins @ Dolphin Stadium (more…)

Its taken me some time to settle back in at home and gather my notes from my trip to Florida. The following is a recap of Thursday, June 21.
I took the day off from work to adequately prepare for the trip down to Florida. Since going in to work involves getting up at 5:20am I thought the sleeping in would help get the trip off to a good start. I needed to accomplish a few things: hair cut to fend off the hair tan, trip to the bank, and to get some gas.
No one in the family was able to take me to the airport. I decided to take a shuttle from the Best Western. It wasn’t too expensive. I figured not having to drive down and leave my car for a few days was worth it. When I return on Sunday someone will be able to pick me up, no problem.
The shuttle trip wasn’t bad. My sister was able to take me to the hotel where it stops. One guy was in the van already and we had to stop on the way to pick up another and do a transfer. The one guy got on at a little after 1pm. He asked the driver how long it would take to get there. Seeing as it was just after 1pm and his flight left at 2pm, the driver was somewhat concerned. We were still about a half hour away and waiting for another van to transfer a passenger. The guy had no worries when the driver expressed his concerns. All the guy said was, “Its ok, I’m flying Southwest.” This needs to be their next commercial. (more…)
